Chapter
The NSF-funded Data Sets and Inquiry in Geoscience Education project (DIGS) developed a set of curriculum modules comprising units and assessments in which students use real geospatial visualizations and data sets to conduct extended inquiry on plate tectonics and local climate change. As befits the differences in research on the two topics, the mo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
International Geospatial teachers and teacher educators have an ever-increasing opportunities and technolgoies that are both intuitive and age-appropriate for students of all ages. Integration of social media and online mapping, expanded online mapping capabilities and societal use of geosptial technologies is increasing exponentially from GPS to s...
Article
The presentation will compare and contrast two different place-based approaches to helping high school science teachers use geospatial data visualization technology to teach about climate change in their local regions. The approaches are being used in the development, piloting, and dissemination of two projects for high school science led by the au...
Article
This article describes the results of a proof of concept project, Data Sets for Inquiry in Geoscience (DIGS), funded by the National Science Foundation. The three goals of the project were to: 1) study the impacts on student learning of web-based supplementary curriculum modules in which secondary students used real geoscience datasets, visualisati...
Article
Place-based field work has been recognized as an important component of geoscience education programs for engaging students. Field work helps students appreciate the spatial extent of data and the systems operating in a locale. Data collected in a place has a temporal aspect that can be explored through representations such as photographs and maps...
Article
The report "Bringing Research on Learning to the Geosciences" (Manduca, Mogk, & Stillings, 2002) proposed a new program of research to invigorate and expand geoscience education. The report recommended integrating best practices in learning science with the distinctive challenges posed by using geoscience data sets and visualizations in inquiry act...
Article
This session will describe a new NSF-funded project in Geoscience education, Inquiring with Geoscience Data Sets. The goals of the project are to (1) Study the impacts on student learning of Web-based supplementary curriculum modules that engage secondary-level students in inquiry projects addressing important geoscience problems using an Earth Sys...
Article
The results suggest that an interactive school-based nutrition education program can successfully influence student knowledge and attitudes toward nutrition. Although there were also improvements in attitudes, statistical differences were limited to knowledge gain. Outcomes point to the challenge of converting greater knowledge into better choices....
Article
Under funding from the World Bank, the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, and the Federal Government's Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment Program (GLOBE), SRI International has developed and piloted web-accessible performance assessments that measure K-12 students' abilities to use learning techn...

Article
The Online Evaluation Resource Library (OERL) is a Web-based set of resources for improving the evaluation of projects funded by the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) of the National Science Foundation (NSF). OERL provides prospective project developers and evaluators with material that they can use to design, conduct, document, a...
Article
21st century cyber infrastructures for distributed learning, communication, and knowledge sharing are unprecedented in the opportunities they provide for global citizens to come together to try to solve the great global crises of our time. Science and scientific research plays a critical role, yet to solve these crises requires a range of skills an...
